Tuesdays or Thursdays were the days to shoot CSX's Chatham to Blenheim-Sarnia turn, or if you wanted to cover the Sarnia subdivision end to end. I took a couple days off work so I could chase on a Thursday and my wife could do more wedding planning (A fair trade - we got married in Sarnia a month later). For whatever reason I also chased D725 south that morning.... which made for a very long day. But I have no regrets :)

12 hours after my first photo I stood here growing tired of the chase but placed the train at the Wallaceburg SNS - the actual station was a half mile timetable north. I'd go for a couple more shots then call it a night, in 7 months CSX would drastically curtail operations, effectively abandoning Dresden to Chatham, and selling to CN Chatham to Blenheim. Wallaceburg would go from 16 trains a week to four and it would stay that way until the line was sold to Chatham-Kent in October 2013. Chatham Kent has recently sold the line to a numbered company and we're waiting to hear what their plans are...
